He also mentioned how there appears to be too many instances where police officers interacting with individuals, mainly African-American and often poor, “in ways that raise troubling questions.” The new Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, is also reportedly looking at the Baltimore situation.

Japan and the U.S. also announced Monday a bolstering of their strategic alliance, both militarily as well as into space and cyberspace.
